    Recently, the number of skin disease cases in the hospital is more than that in summer. Many parents of dogs don’t understand it. It’s not that the autumn is dry and there are no pollen insects. Why does my dog keep scratching and scratching? How can dog get skin disease? Because the temperature is too high and the air humidity is low in this summer, which is not conducive to the propagation of microorganisms, it is said that the common skin diseases of dogs are allergic dermatitis caused by external parasites such as fleas, ticks and visible parasites to the naked eye. As long as the owner has done the external insect repellent well in advance, it can be avoided. In the spring and autumn of these two years, when there is much rain, especially in the southern cities, it is humid Sultry, so the humidity and temperature at this time is the most suitable time for the growth and reproduction of various bacteria, fungi and mites. And the onset time of these diseases is not particularly obvious. The host is easy to ignore, and does not want to find fleas and other external parasites so easily. Often, the disease has developed for a period of time, missed the best treatment time, and the treatment cycle is long, so it also makes the host have a headache.

    Following will show you the first common skin disease: allergic dermatitis. Redness of hair and feet on both forelimbs, which is caused by frequent licking. At this time, the owner should pay attention to the redness of hair and feet on both forelimbs, which is caused by frequent licking. At this time, the owner should pay attention to it Allergic dermatitis is the most easily to be prevented and ignored. In short, it’s food, sunlight, parasites on the surface, improper surface contact.

    No.1 food. Many owners spoil their babies and are used to eating all kinds of dog cans, dog snacks, and more human food, which causes dogs not to like dog food. On the surface, they seem to love it, but in fact, they do not. Careful observation can find that some dogs around you who don’t eat dog food will almost have dry hair and a lot of dandruff, but feel greasy! And his master will tell you, “Oh! My dog eats better than people, and eats meat every meal. “As a omnivorous animal, a single type of meat will not only cause obesity, but also lead to premature aging and exfoliation of the cuticle of the skin, the skin can not moisturize, resulting in imbalance of water and oil, and excessive oil secretion. What’s more, if some proteins are ingested with dogs, it will cause skin allergies, just like some people who eat seafood will have a rash. Itching and skin redness are the problems that the owners are most likely to find. Therefore, no matter what season, food allergy can be controlled artificially, especially for dogs with special allergy. If you can choose the hypoallergenic food / allergy control food in the prescription dog food on the market, (of course, different brands of allergic food have different raw materials, so avoid the suspected raw materials), if you have suspected food allergic dermatitis, It is recommended that you give your puppy at least one month’s prescription food, and you will see obvious improvement. In addition, food safety and complete protective barrier to the skin can ensure that the incidence of skin diseases caused by other microorganisms is reduced.

    No.2 Sunlight. In fact, the skin structure of dogs is much thinner than that of humans. For example, the cuticle of human skin has 20-30 layers, while the cuticle of dogs only has 7-10 layers, so healthy hair is to help dogs resist the invasion of various microorganisms on the skin. It can be seen that many puppies will shave their hair in summer without leaving it at all. In fact, it is very harmful to the skin, because the sun is abundant in summer, and the UV is very large. The animal’s body hair can help absorb and reflect the light, and resist the UV logistically. When you go to the water park or the beach, you will definitely scratch the sunscreen or hide under the sunshade. In the summer, the shaved puppy will be in the sun, just like you who do not take any protective measures at the beach. Although it is only a short walk of 20 minutes, the sun will still excessively stimulate their skin. When it is serious, it will cause skin redness and itching. If the dog feels untimely, it will naturally scratch and lick these parts, which will lead to more serious physical damage. Many of them will cause secondary infection of bacteria. So don’t take off your dog’s coat in summer. Generally, the dog with thick hair needs to leave 1-2cm of hair on its body surface. The long haired dog can trim the hair properly according to the amount of hair, while the sparse short haired dog doesn’t need to shave at all. It’s the best to let it fall off naturally. If you think it’s serious, you can comb the hair once a day.

    No.3 Parasites on the body surface. Many owners will say that we have used insect repellents in summer, and almost all of them have died in autumn. There is no need to prevent them. However, there are more cases of flea allergy from September to October. Fleas will secrete some chemicals from their stomachs before taking blood. Due to different constitution, some puppies are allergic to fleas, and will be particularly pruritus Itch, just like some people will soon subside after being bitten by mosquitoes, and some people alone will have urticaria. Allergies vary from person to person. In fact, we use insect repellents not only for skin diseases, but also to cut off the infectious diseases transmitted by these parasites. Generally speaking, the temperate climate is suitable for the reproduction of these parasites for at least four months in a year. In the subtropical zone, the eggs of these parasites will grow quickly once the conditions are suitable. Therefore, when purchasing the insecticide, the individual should recommend the whole box purchase. If you buy the whole box, there will be four, and the gift is a time mark, which can be pasted on the calendar to make it more difficult to forget the time. Generally speaking, southern cities can use it from June to September. It’s related to drinking living environment in advance or later, which can’t be generalized. Serious pruritus will cause pets to scratch and lick themselves, which will damage the skin surface and cause secondary infection. In this case, it is necessary to go to the hospital for treatment to get effective control. Red skin caused by flea bite. Normal skin and mucous membrane color. Labrador bitten by flea, the owner said that there was often scratching at home, obesity caused that the neck skin could not be scratched, only the lower abdomen could be scratched, causing skin redness. This is the comparison chart of ticks before and after blood sucking, 20 ticks at the same time blood sucking will lead to sudden death of adult rabbits.

    NO.4 Improper body contact. These allergies are relatively special and individualized. Some puppies are allergic to pet perfume, some are allergic to pet clothing fabrics, some are allergic to household disinfectants, some are allergic to overheated beauty razors, others are allergic to external use, and so on. Generally, these allergic symptoms will appear soon after contact with articles (within 2 hours), your dog will have scratching phenomenon, and some will also have red and swollen eye circles. Generally, there is no secondary disease, the diet of the dog is normal, and the mental state will not change greatly. Therefore, these symptoms will disappear quickly without desensitization needle. If they do not disappear within 2 hours Lost, please take it to the hospital and let the doctor judge your dog’s condition.

    Finally, it is reminded that there are many kinds of skin diseases and local lesions. Therefore, you need to make a clear diagnosis before you can use the medicine. Don’t buy some so-called all-around sprays. Please keep your dog scientifically.
